Well then. After a few weeks of heat and drought, now the flood. Water is literally leaking into my bedroom right now through the crack in the fire escape door. The storm is also bad news for those of us who wanted to go see the outdoor screening of Buena Vista Social Club tonight. But it’s very good news for my garden. Having multiple days of soaking rain is going to fatten up my carrots and beets and onions, make my basil succulent and green, and probably bring on a good second crop of beans. And while it’ll cause a lot of splitting in my tomatoes now, it’ll mean more fat tomatoes later. So on balance I’m pro-rain. And I do love a big, bright, loud thunderstorm!
